Capture the Flag is a turn based game. You move all your team, then your opponent moves all of his team. They can run, walk, crawl, or stand. Each stance effects how far you can move in a turn, how well you can see, and how easy it is for your opponent to see you. Capture the Flag has realistic line of sight rules. As you explore your opponent's side the unexplored black area becomes visible terrain. But just because you can see a particular tree it doesn't mean you can see an opponent hiding there. It depends how close you are to the tree, what your stance is, and what your opponent's stance is.
Capture the Flag has an outstanding Play Back mode. At the beginning of your turn you see all of your opponents moves that were visible to your team. Please see the magazine reviews for more detail.
